8 months pregnant what can I take so I can have a bowel movement?

Enema

Intestine
An enema would be fine, as would a gentle laxative to get things started. If you're having ongoing problems, make sure you're getting enough water and you might want to add a stool softener daily. Adding fresh apples, plums, grapes, prunes can also help.

How long does it take to have a bowel movement after eating?

Depends on food

Intestine
Typically, in a digestive tract that works properly, a bowel movement should occur twice daily. Various foods may affect it. High fiber foods will decrease the transit time, cheese and various other foods may slow it down. Probiotics help to promote gut health to maintain consistency of BM's.

Is it true if you take senna with not enough water it will make it difficult to have a bowel movement?

Probably not

Fiber
Senna is a stimulant laxative; so unless the body is dehydrated, senna should not constipate. Fiber laxatives/supplements, however, do require extra fluid intake to prevent constipation, for they absorb water from the bowel to soften stool; if available fluid is inadequate, stool will be firm.
